Whispers of Autumn

I am not a native born Floridian, but I grew up there and call it my home. It is a beautiful, warm, sunny, rainy state that I truly treasure – everything from its palm trees to my favorite Gulf Coast beaches. However, the one thing that precious place is missing is seasons. Since my family moved northward, I have really been enjoying the change of temperature and foliage. It creates a great balance and gives me something to look forward to no matter what time of year it is.

All these beautiful leaves are right outside my kitchen window. It definitely makes doing the dishes a little more relaxing to be able watch the wind gently blow all the pretty colors around. Fall has become a true favorite of mine. Time for warm meals, harvest vegetables, hot chocolate, pumpkin pie, boots, scarves and that unmistakable cool, refreshing breeze.

We also went for a walk this afternoon through Colonial Williamsburg to indulge in the fabulous weather and let the kids play in the leaves.

They had a great time as always. It is such a treat to live by one of the most beautiful places to relax and walk around. The buildings, the history, the fences, the period garb, the gardens, the animals – enchanting.

The reds and yellows are hints between the green everywhere you look…

While running through the grass and leaves we were surprised to hear cannon fire. When we turned the corner to take a look….

Love this place.

    Tracey, thank you for sharing a piece of this historical city at such a nostalgic time of year for me. Because our Florida seasons are so subtle, you almost miss them. Spending some of my childhood growing up in Indiana, I truly miss this seasons change!
    Your children are adorable too!
